Next up we have Harriet Rose, international DJ and presenter at FUBAR Radio. Discover some of the best new artists and bands around right now with Harriet’s tips below.
She’s been hitting all the ones to watch lists this year. Hailing from Manchester, she’s been writing tracks since the age of seven. Genres pretty much don’t exist in the way they used to and I love that, IAMDDB is a good reason why. She’s fusing so many areas of music to create a really unique sound. Check out her latest video for ‘Running’, its stunningly shot and a fire song plus ‘Oooo’ is a massive favourite, both are from ‘Hoodrich, Vol 3’ which came out end of last year and is a must listen.
Kida Kudz is an up and coming artist, who I’m really excited about. He opened for T-Pain and the Game on their last UK tour and is currently travelling all over the world doing gigs and working on new records in the studio. He came the studio on my FUBAR Radio show to chat about his latest single ‘Issa Vibe’ and the new video. He’s so passionate about his music, and is working with some really exciting names for his next releases. Check out his latest track ‘Issa Vibe’ it’s a banger and i think it’s gonna be a huge summer tune.
I am so excited about this girl. She’s just dropped an EP called ‘Femme’, and at 22 her sound resonates so much maturity. in this EP she explores race, gender and sexuality from her own perspective and it’s a really beautiful piece of work. Her vocals have huge depth, a mix of soul and jazz. ‘She Is The Sum’ is my favourite track on the EP and the video has just dropped too, check it out.
I’ve been a big fan of Dan ever since he came on my new music show on FUBAR Radio recently. He’s a perfect example of real talent getting the recognition it deserves. He’s been working hard writing with other artists behind the scenes alongside touring with the likes of Rag’n’Bone Man, Anne Marie and Honne and now he’s scored a hit with Rudimental, Jess Glynne and Macklemore with ‘These Days’. He also recently released ‘Flat Champagne’ which features Ray BLK. He talks a lot about real life scenarios in such a soulful way it’s hard to not get excited about this guy. Things are really popping for him!
20-year old Grace is wise beyond her years. She’s been on tour with Rag’n’Bone Man, Dua Lipa and Dermot Kennedy and is currently supporting Mabel on her headline tour. Her music is really honest and emotional, cuts to the core and you can really see that her music really connects with people. Drawing on her own childhood and personal experiences gives you a direct intro to Grace and who she is. She’s super humble and sweet and her debut EP will be coming out soon so keep an eye out. For now you can find her latest track ‘Silhouette’ out now.
